This singing wall has tourists braving stormy weather to listen to its music, composed only when skies are grey.

An intricate system of drains and funnels is attached to the outside of a colorful house in Germany and when it rains the entire building becomes an instrument.

The house is located in Neustadt Kunsthofpassage, an area of Dresden part of an art project called the Courtyard of Elements.

The singing house was created by sculptor Annette Paul and designers Christoph Rossner and André Tempel, who all live in the musical home.

Ms. Paul said she was inspired by her home in St Petersburg where she would listen to the "rain theatre" of the pipes outside her home.

The Courtyard of Elements also have a yellow façade with aluminum panels representing the light, and a green one adorned with giraffes and monkeys representing the animals.

Neustadt Kunsthofpassage has a total of five courtyards, including the 'Courtyard of Metamorphoses and the Courtyard of Mythical Creatures'
